Recorded by The Dubliners with Luke Kelly singing.  Tommy has written many fine songs over the years including -Four Green Fields-The Boys Of Killybegs The Town Of Ballybay,to name but a few. The sheet music notes for the tin whistle and also a banjo / mandolin tab is included.

When[G] I was[C] young and in my[G] prime
And could[C] wander wild and[G] free
There was always a[C] longing in my[G] mind
To[Em] follow the call of the[G] sea
[Chorus]
So[G] I'll sing farewell to[C] Carling[G]ford
And farewell to Gree[D]nore
And I'll[G] think of you both[C] day and[G] night
Untill I return[D] once[G] more,untill[C] I re[D]turn once[G] more
[2]
On all the stormy seven seas
I have sailed before the mast
And every voyage I ever made
I swore it would be my last
[3]
And I had a girl called Mary Doyle
And she lived in Greenore
And the foremost thought in my mind
Was to keep me safe onshore
[4]
A landman's life is all his own
He can go or he can stay
But when the sea gets in your blood
When she calls you must obey,,

I have sailed before the mast

And every voyage I ever made

And I had a girl called Mary Doyle

And she lived in Greenore

And the foremost thought ihat was in my mind

Was to keep me safe onshore

 

A landman's life is all his own

He can go or he can stay

But when the sea gets in your blood

When she calls you must obey,,
